Evergreen Sotol from arid, winter-cold regions in southern North America southwards to Mexico. They are Yucca or Agave-like shrubs with stiff leaves. Most species form dense, globular rosettes of blackish-green to bluish-green leaves with strongly teethed margins. Several species are winter hardy in Central Europe in a protected position in full sun in the rock garden. Alternatively they can be grown under frostfree conditions in large pots or containers. Grow in any rocky soil.
Sow flat in any soil in full sun at a minimum of some 20°C. Transplant to the open garden after two years. Seedlings need extra protection from moisture in winter. Very easy and robust solitary plants for a sunny spot in the rock garden. Very long lived.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7, unless stated differently.
